More detail on the DVD, from the band’s mailing list:

Los Angeles, CA (September 8, 2009) – Vagrant Records is pleased to announce their partnership with Black Rebel Motorcycle Club to release Live, a 2-DVD, 1 CD set on November 10, 2009 on the band’s own Abstract Dragon label.

The DVD features over two hours of live concert footage from three sold out shows in Berlin, Dublin and Glasgow. The footage documents the end of the band’s 2007 tour in support of Baby 81 , their most recent full-length release. The live audio was mixed by BRMC’s own Peter Hayes and the gritty cinematography keeps the band’s music front and center while viewers experience the show both from the stage and from the audience’s perspective.

Over ninety minutes of unadorned, intimate behind-the-scenes footage is captured on the second bonus DVD along with additional performance footage. Viewers accompany BRMC as they record songs from Howl, see the making of the “Weapon of Choice” video, and witness inspired, impromptu off-stage performances.

The package is rounded out by a bonus audio CD featuring 14 songs from the concert film and a gorgeous 48-page booklet of previously unseen backstage and candid photos of the band. The full track listing and cover art will be revealed in the coming weeks.

The Los Angeles, CA-based group is currently at The Station House studio in Hollywood finishing work on their fifth studio album. This will be the band’s first recording with drummer Leah Shapiro and is expected to have a March 2010 release.

“We lived and breathed this record for 6 months out in one the coldest Philadelphia winters in history. Every track on there was frozen to our bones, and chipped off one sliver at a time” – Robert Been
